2008_01_FOmain_logo.jpgIf Fox & Obel's new owners have their way, you'll be seeing a lot more of the gourmet markets throughout the city in the near future.

The Sun-Times reports that Vulpes LLC, an investment group, bought out Fox & Obel and is earmarking an aggressive expansion campaign. Vulpes is headed by Bill Bolton, who has experience running Jewel-Osco and its parent company Supervalu. If Mr. Bolton is open for location suggestions, there's an recently closed Jewel at 30th and Halsted, right by our apartment. We'd even help put up a few shelves to speed things along.
